Biography

Juan Sebastián Molano Benavides

Juan Sebastián Molano Benavides (born 11 April 1994) is a Colombian professional racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam UAE Team Emirates. He was named in the startlist for the 2017 Vuelta a España. In May 2019, he was named in the startlist for the 2019 Giro d'Italia.

While riding the 2019 Giro d'Italia, Molano was suspended by his team following stage 3 after "seemingly unusual physiological results". The team did not comment where these results originated from and refrained from commenting further until more tests were carried out. Molano did not start stage 4. Molano was later cleared to resume racing at the Adriatica Ionica Race in late-July 2019 after further tests found he was "highly sensitive to altitude changes."
